Although, as a Mets fan, it was tough watching the Mr. Met looking character fail so badly (much like the baseball team).

  • RedBull Crashed Ice: Your New Favorite Sport (14 Photos)

    Its always great to see the preliminary stages of a sport destined for greatness. Red bull has done it again, innovating a new sport combining the speed and grit of hockey with down hill cross ice racing. The sport has been around since 2001, but has grown significantly in popularity the past couple of years. Basically a down hill roller derby. The courses are bumpy, narrow, and steep, which involve downhill skating in an urban environment, on a track which includes steep turns and high vertical drops. So if you’ve ever taken your girlfriend for an ice skate around the rink in the winter you know how easy it is to look like a fool with skates on.
